It's all the rage these days: live, professional musicians and dancers backing pre-recorded vocals by inimitable performers combined with dazzling staging in high-concept theatrical productions. (No, it's not quite holographic Tupac Shakur, but close.) In Come Fly Away, the new Broadway musical at the Bushnell this week, Frank Sinatra's legendary voice gets paired with choreography by Tony Award-winner Twyla Tharp for a visceral, unique experience, complete with on-stage big band and professional high-stepping. "Fly Me To The Moon," "My Way," "New York, New York," "Witchcraft": all classic performances by Ol' Blue Eyes that'll outlive us all. Check it out.

May 29-June 3, $17-$72, Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, 166 Capitol Ave., Hartford, (888) 824-2874, thebushnell.org.
